Default Re: Akai1710W

The speaker switch on the back should be set to "normal" to hear them Dorian!.
If the headphones are working it's probably on "mute"!
There is provision to connect external spkrs as well. Again on the back!
The Full Manual and Operating Instructions are available free at Radio Museum.
